Where is Home?
Where your folks are
Where your kids are. Where your sweetheart is
Where you grew up, played ball, scored your first goal!
Home! It’s an illusion, a notion of the past; does not exist anymore
Home has become a suitcase, a plane seat, a hotel room, or at best
A house, which you know you’re leaving; sooner or later
Why do people long for a home? Why do people dream of coming back home?
Is it the sense of peace? Is it a worrier rest place, or is it just a dream?
Birds have homes, they migrate, and when they feel home-sick, they fly back home
And where is home? Do you really need a home? Is that the norm?
Life, as we know it, is too short to be wasted looking for; anything!
The act, the feeling of looking, in itself, is tiring, let alone
The struggle, the wanting, the disappointment, and the despair
Being stretched, torn apart, disoriented, knowing none
Of where you’re, or where you’re headed, nothing is solid like a stone
Nothing is clear, nothing is worthy of looking, even home
Before looking for a home, find who you really are, what you stand for
If the meaning behind finding a home is peace, then you won’t find it at all
If you’re lost on the inside, even if you go back to your folks, your kids, your sweetheart
None will give you peace
For home is peace
So instead of looking for a home, look for peace
And that, my friend, has been inside you all along
Yet, you’ve been busy looking outside, everywhere, but inside
Home is where you are free; at the core
Home is pride, strength. Home is where you can shout: Here I Am!
Where you stand firm and tall. Where you say it all
No fear, no prejudgments, no fall
Home is not a place, but a feeling, a sweat, lovely feeling
It ignites your soul with confidence, makes it fly high
It gives you self-assurance
It makes you dream, and fulfill your dream
With power, love and passion
No matter where you go, you take it with you, even when you die
But if you couldn’t find it here, during this short passage called “life”
You wouldn’t find it on the other side. You’ve lost it forever
You got your chance, there isn’t another!
